Why my atom is so slow and use so much ram


Hey guys,

All is in the title, I don’t understand my atom is so slow and use so much ram ? (See link attached)
I don’t use many package or theme, my macbook pro is from march 2015 with 8GB ram and 256SSD.

Compared to my phpstorm/webstorm or even sublime text, even if I like all the feature that atom provide and how customizable it is, I can’t run it properly for some weeks, it often freeze.

Have you some tips to fix that ?
